Good morning. Here’s what you need to know today, Thursday, Oct. 1, 2015:
Slip, sliding into fall
Lingering showers could make the commute into work a little slippery. No measurable rainfall fell in the official gauge for Sacramento overnight, but that may change this morning because there is a chance of thunderstorms in the forecast.
Schools’ start times on agenda
The Davis Joint Unified School District board will get an update on proposals to delay start times at middle and high schools to accommodate teenagers’ sleep needs. A committee has been examining the issue, and one idea has been to delay the start time 45 minutes to 8:30 a.m. The board’s open session begins at 7 p.m., Community Chambers, 23 Russell Blvd., Davis.
Rancho Cordova volunteers to meet
A Volunteers in Neighborhood Services meeting is planned from 3 to 5 p.m. in the Community Board Room at Rancho Cordova City Hall, 2729 Prospect Drive. The group is composed of Rancho Cordova residents concerned about their community.
